Gricer

Gricer (slang): an individual with specialist knowledge

Gricer focuses on sounds, rhythm and tempo, and inhabits the spaces in-between, bypassing genres, and dodging clichés. The 12 compositions on this debut, self-titled album create their own dark dynamic through a combination of rock minimalism, austere near-ballads, improvisation, pure sound, and bold use of space.

Gricer is David Maleed: composer, electric guitars, Hammond B3 organ, glockenspiel, environmental sounds, clapping, with Subs Subassa: bass guitar, electronic tone; Dylan Howe: drums; Jay Phelps: trumpet, and Jenny Adejayan: cello.

Recorded at Westside, The Premises and Eastcote studios in London 2004/2005.

Engineer: Philip Bagenal.

Meticulous attention to fluid sonic detail

Outstanding and ever intriguing

They veer between moody trumpet ballads at one extreme and pure sound experiments at the other
BBC RADIO 3'S ROBERT SANDALL, MIXING IT

I've been plodding through millions of same old soul destroying CDs from rock bands all day and at 2am this saved my sanity... it's wonderful
